San Bernardino City License and Permit Bond
San Bernardino City is imposing pre-licensing requirements before issuing the necessary permits and licenses. This guarantees that businesses or applicants will operate according to city ordinances. Before being granted a license, the business must first be bonded.
What is covered under these permits and licenses?
San Bernardino City issues several obligatory permits and licenses before businesses can secure their business certifications and conduct projects affecting the public property.
These permits and licenses ensure standards are met and that the public will be compensated accordingly should applicants cause any licensing infractions, such as damages to the public right-of-way, in the course of the project.
Normally, these pre-licensing obligations are imposed by the federal, state, and local government offices.
What is a License and Permit Bond?
A License and Permit Bond is also called a ‘commercial bond’. Before any business is allowed to operate, they are mandated by law to purchase and file for a License and Permit bond with the City of San Bernardino.
Under the bond, the business agrees to operate in accordance with local laws and regulations to protect customers and the City of San Bernardino from financial damages.
License bonds help prevent businesses from conducting fraudulent practices or subpar work, effectively ensuring the government and consumers are insured and compensated. The details of the bond requirements will depend on the industry of the business. Thankfully, our surety bond experts can help you identify proper application requirements for said bond.

How does it work?
The bond must be issued by a surety bond provider certified by the County of Tulare. The parties in the agreement are the Principal (business or permit applicant), Obligee (San Bernardino City), and Surety/Bond Company or Obligor (surety bond provider or insurance).
The Obligor will guarantee the compensation (performance bond) of the Obligee should the Principal fail to meet their standards or violate other licensing provisions. The Obligor will assess the validity of claims, where claims may only amount to the total penal sum agreed upon in the bond form. The Principal shall reimburse all expenses covered by the Obligor.
The Obligor is secured through an indemnity agreement as the licensed business is mandated by law for the full reimbursement of the claims, including legal fees and premiums. This agreement shall be made before the execution of the bond and shall ascertain the business's responsibility for their dealings.
How much does it cost?
To obtain a San Bernardino City License and Permit Bond, you will typically have to pay 0.5% of the total bond amount.
